And here's a hard truth that all to need to remember while you watch certain Republicans act like they are on the "right side of history" suddenly since J6.

The was NEVER a reasonable Republican Party. It's a lie. A myth. They are the former Dixiecrats & their politics is based on white supremacy.

What you are seeing is the endgame of the white backlash to the Acts passed in the 60s and other progressive acts since e.g. BvB l & ll, Educational Amendments Act of 1972, RoeVWade, Loving vs Virginia, 1st Black SCOTUS Judge, etc.

They've been working on this for decades.

Even the ones you think are "reasonable.* Reagan was the worst thing to happen to 🇺🇸 before Trump in recent memory. He was a racist and his policies were detrimental to 🇺🇸.

Who was a Reagan administration aide/consult after he won in 1980?

Lee Atwater.

Do you know who he is?

He's considered the "Father of the Southern Strategy."

What's the Southern Strategy?

Let Lee tell you in his own words.

It's still being used today.

He just described modern day Republican politics. And yes Liz Cheney plays that game. Just about all of them do.

So if Cheney ain't 💩 bc of her voting record yet you wanna separate her from "the cult" bc she's suddenly speaking your language with Maddow...

....you just fell for the okie doke.

So now you'd just "agree to disagree" about what she stands on that hurts ppl to satisfy some sense of patriotism bc you deem J6ers worse than her?

That's what causes division in 🇺🇸 bc some liberals have a false sense if 🇺🇸 unity.

Particularly white liberals.

So spare me the Cheney praise and white owned liberal media giving her a light pass bc she stands against Trump but affected or stood against policies that hurt millions of people bc her party and their beliefs came first.

She's trash. Just like her father.

She hates 45 more than she hates liberals. That is all we need today. But beware tomorrow...

Trump is not the main issue. He's a symptom of it. A piece of a larger puzzle. The main issue is white supremacy and there's nothing useful about it. And Liz Cheney walks in it. Anyone who walks in white supremacy is the enemy of 🇺🇸 progression.

Especially Black ppl.

Period.

This is needed dialogue amongst all of us. She’s a snake who did her job in support of the constitution not for America but because she knows how to play the long game. She cannot be trusted.
